Great Houses Of England & Wales
Montgomery-Massingberd, Hugh and Sykes, Christopher S.
Great Houses Of England & Wales
In this chronological selection of thirty-two of the most notable houses in England and Wales, Hugh Montgomery-Massingberd and Christopher Simon Sykes present a panoramic history of the evolution of the 'great house'. Featuring 32 notable residences of England's great families, including Highclere Castle, the real-life Downton Abby, featured on the book's cover. The selection tours acknowledged architectural masterpieces, such as Castle Howard, along with lesser-known delights, such as Tredegar - one of a number of houses in this book that were closed to the public for many years. It is also a history of great families, seen as part of the houses they created, where their descendants, in many cases, still live today. Full of memorable characters and anecdotal insight, this book is a glorious tribute to what Evelyn Waugh called 'our chief national artistic achievement'.
